Publisher's Summary

Celaena Sardothien is her kingdom's most feared assassin. Though she works for the powerful and ruthless Assassin's Guild, Celaena yields to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam.
When Celaena's scheming master, Arobynn Hamel, dispatches her on missions that take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, she finds herself acting independently of his wishes - and questioning her own allegiance. Along the way, she makes friends and enemies alike, and discovers that she feels far more for Sam than just friendship. But by defying Arobynn's orders, Celaena risks unimaginable punishment, and with Sam by her side, he is in danger, too. They will have to risk it all if they hope to escape Arobynn's clutches - and if they fail, they'll lose not just a chance at freedom, but their lives...
A prequel to Throne of Glass, this collection of five novellas offers listeners a deeper look into the history of this cunning assassin and her enthralling - and deadly - world.
Included in this volume:
The Assassin and the Pirate Lord
The Assassin and the Healer
The Assassin and the Desert

Stupid Heroine!

Would you listen to The Assassin's Blade again? Why?

Yes I would listen to this book again. I did enjoy the story, even if the main character was a silly little girl.

What other book might you compare The Assassin's Blade to, and why?

Can't think of any at the moment.

What about Elizabeth Evans’s performance did you like?

It was a performance that brought the story to life. Very well done.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A Silly Girl Walks Into An Obvious Story

Any additional comments?

I truly enjoyed the story, but I have to say I just couldn't stand the main character. She was arrogant, spoiled, vapid and stupid. It was the story that made this book worth listening to; that and the other characters. I will be listening to the other audio books in this series. I'll just ignore the spoiled brat, and enjoy the rest.
